founder of Talkin' Loud Records and host of
the "Worldwide" show on BBC Radio 1 returns to Toronto
for his first visit since 1998. Gilles has dropped two classic
compilations (INCredible sounds of Gilles Peterson, and Worldwide)
since his last time here. Having signed classic acts from Incognito
and The Young Disciples to Roni Size and MJ Cole, Gilles continues
his tradition of exposing new sounds and new talent to the world
connecting the dots from Brazilian vibes, fresh 2-step garage,
rare groove, obscure Afro-Cuban jazz funk and all points in between.
Mad poet Earl Zinger former Galliano front man and co-producer
of the Two Banks Of Four project joins Gilles' musical excursion
on the mic disseminating mystical truths, party rockin' and generally
having a good time.
Productions (Carlos and Pedro Mondesir) creators of Garage
416, Bump N' Hustle and innumerable other musical gatherings
celebrate 6 years of pioneering the jazzy, soulful, funky essence
of dance music from the roots to the cutting edge in Toronto.
We present our original Bump N' Hustle crew of Paul E. Lopes,
Jason Palma and Mike Tull to rep the Toronto party
flavour that is now known worldwide as one of the hottest spots
on the planet.
